Child Care

Child Care


Preschool, Toddler and Infant Classrooms to help your family grow.

The YMCA Early Learning Academy provides enriching experiences that help to facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. We strive to meet the developmental needs of each individual child by working in partnership with his or her families. Our program, licensed by the State of PA and the STARS program (we are a STAR 3 facility), provides a curriculum that focuses on how children develop and learn so that each child is prepared to enter kindergarten. 
  • Infant through Pre-K
  • Monday-Friday (even on Snow Days)
  • Open 6 am - 6 pm
  • Field trip, swimming, story time at the library, outdoor play and walks
  • A safe place to learn and thrive
  • Pre-K focuses on kindergarten readiness for Crawford County Schools (Readiness checklist can be found here)
  • Provide nutritious cooked lunches as well as breakfast and snacks
  • Also due to our generous Helping Hands Donors, the Y is able to provide scholarships to families for Child Care! Please call for more details.


In Y Care After School Programs, kids engage in physical, learning and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school, they participate in interactive learning models that engage critical thinking skills, get assistance with their homework from trained YMCA staff, and have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence. School age kids also have the opportunity to participate in STEM activities (science, technology, engineering, math), a variety of literacy activities and HEPA activities (healthy eating, physical activities).
